New convertible Spyder version joins the Coupe introduced in 2019
Hybrid supercar develops 986 horsepower from three electric motors and a twin-turbo V8
The Ferrari SF90 Spider will go on sale at the end of next year
Say hello to the all-new Ferrari SF90 Spyder, a convertible version of Ferrari’s flagship hybrid supercar which will be offered at the end of 2021.
Announced today, the all-new Ferrari SF90 Spyder will feature a retractable hardtop that can open and close in just 14 seconds, but that’s not the only thing that’s ridiculously fast with this particularly impressive piece of engineering.
The Ferrari SF90, both the Stradale Coupe and Spider convertible, is the most powerful production Ferrari ever built, even more powerful than the LaFerrari. Using a twin-turbo V8 paired with three electric motors, the SF90 sends 986 horsepower to all four wheels along with 590 pound-feet of torque.
An eight-speed dual-clutch sends power to the wheels and propels the SF90 Spider to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds. The numbers are the same in the SF90 Stradale coupe.
There’s some nifty aerodynamic work on the Spider to guarantee the same level of performance as the coupe. A shut-off Gurney flap is mounted on the rear and there’s an active control system that optimizes rear downforce. The rear intake vents were adjusted to provide optimal cooling while taking into account the new space reserved for the retractable top.
Inside, we get the same highly advanced interior that includes touchscreen buttons on the steering wheel. The instrument cluster is a 16-inch screen that provides all of the important information one needs when driving one of the world’s most powerful cars.
Back to the retractable hardtop, Ferrari says it used aluminium to make it 40 kg lighter than a regular hardtop. The Spider weighs 121 kg more than the Stradale Coupe, but a new Assetto Fiorano package uses advanced materials such as carbon and titanium to lower the difference in weight to a clean 100 kilos. The special package also includes sportier Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, Multimatic spool-valve dampers and specific livery.
Pricing is set at $558,000 US which seems like a bargain considering the level of performance provided.
